At Ocean Dental in Burnaby, we provide bridges and crowns to help you get the smile you want.
If you are considering dental bridges or crowns, please contact us and we can help!
A dental crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Porcelain crowns are durable, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.
There are several types of bridges. You and your dentist will discuss the appropriate option for your particular case.
The “traditional bridge” is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal.
This type of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
At our practice in Burnaby, British Columbia, we offer CEREC technology for bridges & crowns treatments.
